During the four-day tour of Madhya Pradesh, Gandhi will conduct road shows and meetings. He will perform puja at the famous Mahakaleshwar temple in Ujjain and address a public meeting in Dhar district on March 6, said state Congress president Jitu Patwari.

"Kamal Nath has said that he would join the the yatra during its Madhya Pradesh leg, so there is no spice left for the media and BJP," he said apparently referring to the speculation about Nath's possible switch to the saffron party.

Earlier in the day, Congress general secretary in-charge of Madhya Pradesh. Bhanwar Jitendra Singh reviewed preparations for the Yatra and formed various committees to ensure its success, a party functionary said.

Senior Congress leaders, including Kamal Nath and Digvijaya Singh, Rajya Sabha member Vivek Tankha, and district in-charges from where the yatra will pass, attended the meeting virtually.

The yatra will enter Madhya Pradesh at Morena from Rajasthan on March 2. It will pass through Gwalior, Shivpuri, Guna, Rajgarh, Shajapur, Ujjain, Dhar and Ratlam before entering Rajasthan again on March 6 from Sailana.

Gandhi will address a public meeting in Badnawar town in Dhar district on March 6.
